Apply for a bursary to attend the Annual Conference as a third-sector volunteer, worker, or service user

Applications have now closed for bursaries to attend the SSA’s Annual Conference in Newcastle on Thursday 9 November and Friday 10 November 2023.

This funding scheme aims to support people from third-sector organisations who would like to present at the SSA Annual Conference, and would otherwise be unable to attend. If you receive the bursary, the SSA will waive the conference ticket price, and fund up to £200 towards the cost of travel and accommodation.

Applicants must:
have submitted an abstract for an oral presentation, poster presentation, or both, at the 2023 Annual Conference
be a volunteer, worker, or service user from a third-sector organisation (e.g. registered charity, not-for-profit organisation, or self-help/community group) – contact us if you are not sure whether this applies to you

The deadline for applying was Monday 17 July 2023 at 6pm (BST). You can expect a decision about the bursary in late August / early September. Please note that if your presentation is not accepted by the reviewing panel, you will no longer be eligible for a supported place.
